ask you, ask any of you, have you heard from kathleen sebelius asking for your help? have you heard from the white house? have you heard from anyone in washington about this? >> no, not yet. and, you know, i hope that, you know in the future we'll actually be able to work with the government to get more, richer data sets. right now we're working with a very limited set of plan information. we're trying to quickly gather as much information as we can so we can reach as many people as we can. but really, you know if we had a broader data set that the government does have available we would be able to, you know, have a much larger impact i think. melissa: ming, what is your plan from here? is this a real business you set up with a profit motive going forward? was it just something you did in a few hours to see if you could do it? or is this a company that you're going to run? >> we haven't really talked about any sort of monetizaton or whether or not it is going to be a company. for now the goal is to provide the best user experience around, comparing and finding plans, understanding y
a look at something with me. i don't know if you caught this today, congressman. kathleen sebelius wrote a blog ahead the deadline which we know now is a moving target with thought an extension and shut it down overnight. highlights on the screen for you and all of our viewers now. i just want you to see she has kind of put a shopping theme to getting coverage on once it goes live again. a holiday shopping theme. she says the product is popular. so avoid the lines and shop during off peak hours, morning, nights, weekends. that sounds like a lot of hours. sounds like it's going to be crowded which gets them back into the problem they were trying to avoid. next point is have your income and tax information ready when you log on. 23 shopping days in december for coverage starting january 1st, 2014. no need to rush, unless, of course, you have got a cancellation notice and you are desperate to get healthcare before the first. your thoughts? >> well, isn't it amazing united states government sharp retailer. i don't think that helps the confidence and credibility
sketch and parody of health secretary kathleen sebelius. she said the website was only designed to handle six users at a time and it got a laugh on saturday night. then figures came out released by republicans yesterday showing only six americans actually did sign up during the website's entire first day of operations. the obama administration fought back today. they said those figures are not official. they say the pace of enrollment will pick up and new numbers will be released later this month. >>> a story from medicine making news tonight. the march of dimes says premature births in the u.s. have fallen to a 15-year low, mostly because of better health, better health care. but sadly the u.s. still ranks worst among the nations in the developing world. >>> and a man who has always dispensed medical care his way has retired. there may never be anyone like dr. russell donor of rushville, illinois. we profiled him last year in our "making a difference" segment. he was called the $5 doctor locally. because that's all he ever charged for an office visit. he is ending his practice and his cl
individuals. kathleen sebelius is the secretary of health and human services. >> it's troubling to think that someone could pick and choose, not based on science, not based on health care not based on anything else, but pick and choose which services to provide to employees. that would be a troubling picture. >> pelley: anna werner is joining us now. anna let's look in the future a little bit. what would happen if the supreme court ruled in favor of the administration, but the company still refused to cover birth control? >> reporter: well, at that point, scott, if hercules industries chose not to cover contraception, its attorneys say the company would face fines. how much? by their calculation, a company of that size, those fines could amount to as much as $26,000 per day. >> pelley: anna, thanks very much. the court is expected to hear arguments in this case in march. more positive signs in the economy today. the nasdaq composite closed above 4,000 for the first time in 13 years. investors were encouraged by today's housing data. home construction is up 13.9% over the same time last y
of tomorrow, top officials were hedging their bets today. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius today blogged that people should shop during off-peak hours, morning, nights, weekends. not a vote of confidence says luke chung. >> it tells me the system isn't fully baked. this system should be able to accommodate as many people that want to get on as possible. >> what i'm going to do is make sure we get it fixed. >> reporter: chung says the administration's goal of making sure the website can support 50,000 users at one time by the end of saturday is not the best way to measure success. >> 50,000 is not a number that is unheard of for websites to be able to support at one time. so i think the challenge is not just the number of users but whether there are still bugs in the system that will prevent the process from running smoothly. >> reporter: late this afternoon a health care official said the site can support close to 50,000 users now and cited other progress, the error rate once 6% has dropped to less than 1%. the website now operates much more quickly.
about that? >> well, we've heard time and time again, republicans calling for kathleen sebelius, the secretary of health and human services, they've been calling it for her to be fired. we're now starting to hear about some talk about that. here is the problem with that, if president obama were, say, to fire kathleen sebelius, he would have to replace her with someone who would then have to go through senate confirmation. right now, the white house is in trouble, especially on capitol hill, and trying to get someone new confirmed would be difficult for them. erin mcpike in washington, thank you. >>> msnbc has yanked alec baldwin and his late-night talk show off the air. that has happened for two weeks. why the actor shouted a gay slur at a photographer. he did apologize. >> here's what he said, what i said and did this week as i was trying to protect my family was offensive. this undermines hard-fought rights that i vigorously support. >> baldwin overheated thursday outside of his apartment. he was struggling to get his wife and baby into his mercedes. glaad, a gay rights organi
secretary astrazeneca continues to -- kathleen sebelius to sell the president's promise. sebelius says there is not a plan at this point. she says the administration is looking at its options. back to you. >> rich, more obamacare talk with entrepreneur we have coming on later. be interesting to hear the story you're talking about. rich, thank you from d.c. dagen: nerd alert. you guys will have to wait a little longtory see disney's first effort making a "star wars" film. 2015, summer blockbuster. show up in time for santa claus. connell: okay. that's big news. we'll talk about that and when it is all said and done, man, this typhoon, we talked about it yesterday. boy, was it horrible. ravaging the philippines. when said and done could be the biggest storm on record. the story is coming up. dagen: connell and i know how important sleep is but science is still trying to show us why lack of sleep is a productivity killer and we'll talk about that and learn how to sleep better. connell: wow, learn how to sleep. that would be great. dagen: we're going to roll a bed in here and everything. c
the website happened if i thought it wasn't going to work. >> his advisers are learning kathleen sebelius and members of the white house knew before the rollout that the obamacare website had major problems. 9 dennis kneale with cheryl casone to take you through markets now. shocking documents just released on who at the white house on health-care red flags and when and how safe is your date on the latest of two hearings on -- carl icahn sending the market south with this forecast. should you listen? charles payne and oliver porche way in and a big battle over the future of solar energy taking place in arizona. we will speak with a key player. all this and more in the next hour of markets now. dennis: the dow clinging to its game. cheryl: and certainly those comments from carl icahn didn't help the s&p yesterday. weighing on market sentiment but we will talk about that. dennis: talk the stock prices down. cheryl: top of the hour, stocks every 15 minutes, nicole petallides on the floor of the stock exchange and also an added bonus, phil flynn at the cme and what you watchin
care and much sweeter, too. we thank ryan for going out. and according to kathleen sebelius, it is not her fault she can't enroll in obama care, that is the way the law was written. >> if it is possible for you to forego government program you have now, will you tell the american public yes, i will go in the exchanges next year like everybody else. >> sir, the way the law is written. >> yes, nor. if you are wrong. >> i don't give misinformation to the american. i don't want to give misinformation. >> i want you to research. >> you go into the exchanges? if you can, will you? >> that is yes, no. >> i will look at it. i don't have any idea. >> that is not a yes or no. >> if it she really wants to go under the obama care exchanges, of course she can. she doesn't want to. and that's why she isn't and neither is president obama and his family. you know when the cock won't eat what comes out of the kitchen, that tells me something is wrong with what is on the plate. the reason that americans don't want it because the people who created it, won't eat their own cooking. >> democrati
numbers would be really bad, really weak, because that's what kathleen sebelius was saying. they have tried to low ball it as much as they can or inoculate against the numbers. what else can they do? >> not much else they can do. maybe release trend data. maybe they will show in the final week of october they finally saw as the web improved, going up. can feel better about you have 36 federal exchanges producing 50,000 enrollees and you have about 14 state-run exchanges because we do not have numbers out of california producing about the same. we know state exchanges working a lot better as far as website were concerned than federal ones. they may be able to take heart in that. they will have a much larger enrollment on medicate, that is performing level. my guess is they will be able to talk in those terms. the real key is going to be who are these enrollees. they need young, healthy people, the insurance companies do, for this to work. they can't just have it be folks with health problems, big users of the health system, to be the ones who are likely to be the early signees. that's
kathleen sebelius did. come on and say we are sorry and it's not where it needs to be. we are working around the clock and it will be up and running by november 30th. we are putting time into making sure it's viable. look for issa to get into the nitty greaty and say when did you know it wasn't working. was it an issue of contractors? you mentioned the officer for the white house. another interesting guy to look at is the it gentlemen named henry chow. he's not a political appointee. he served republicans and democrats. he will be someone who knows how this website was created through cms and that's the guy who delivers the most explosive testimony on the republican side. overall what this is today is really the gop plan for the rest of the year. as one leadership aide told me, this is the health care holiday season. they don't have anything else to do. the government is funded until january 15th. immigration is not going to happen. the farm bill is facing an uphill battle. this is where they will put their time and effort from now until christmas. you saw that strategy. drip, drip, d
and hhs secretary kathleen sebelius on april 12 of this year, just days after both became aware of the mackenzie findings, that unfortunately is one incident. there are many more. president obama told americans they could keep their doctors and their insurance if they liked them, at least 37 times, during the presidential campaign. we know those statements are untrue. and raise questions as to whether obamacare could have passed without those presidential untruths and whether we would have been re-elected. president invoked economed exece privilege. president obama said he did not know about irs targets of conservative and tea party groups. nsa spying on world leaders or department of justice snooping on reporters. the obama administration lied to the american people, whether they claimed that a juvenile spt lady to the death of 4 americans in benghazi, but the president implied untruths to u.n. general assembly 14 days after he claimed he knew that benghazi was a terrorist attack. there is no. >>> there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. there are no words that excu
. this is not a relaunch of the obama in care web site. wait a second, wasn't it kathleen sebelius say to congress this was a magic day. we have been waiting three years, hundreds of millions of dollars this is the day and it's not going to work. here is the question. why hasn't she been fired? >> why has no one been fired for this debacle inside the white house? >> rejiggering and creating a war room. jeffrey zions creating war room to look at the engineering. no one was fired. instead what they did was brought them all together in one room so they can work more collaboratively. >> she got up in front of congress saying november 30th this will be done and if not, today is the day, we have 55 minutes until this relaunch and it's not going to work. >> success is only 80%, mind you. if it's working 80% for the majority of the people for the majority of the time then it's going to, with. i think it's a lot easier to reboot a web sight though than it is to, you know, power down or to reboot the trust of the american people what's that what allen west is saying about this. the president's credibility i
exchanges. but the federal exchange, no money. in fact, juliette reports that kathleen sebelius couldn't find enough money to keep programmers under her wing and so what ended up happening was all of the responsibilities were fragmented to several offices in different locations. so what ends up happening is the train wreck that the republicans predicted would happen came true largely in part because of what republicans did to try to derail the law. now, that's not to say that there weren't mistakes, miscalculations, political timidity on the white house's part. but at least the white house is trying to do something affirmative, do something positive for people who don't have health insurance. the republicans have been trying to sabotage a law with no alternative to replace it with. >> and what you said just now interestingly enough seems to be where the american people are, jonathan. because if you look at the polls, the public still wants to give obama care a chance. 47% want to keep or expand the law. only 24% want to see the law repealed. and 13% say they want the law repealed and r
kathleen sebelius for more. good to see you tonight. as the president was out there with the 800 number he knew that basically was just another way of sending people to the website ultimately. >> it's a facade. it's one of several facades, megyn. the president already has a nobel prize for peace. i think he's shooting for one in fiction to send people to the mail instead of the website when you know you are going in exactly the same queue is to create an appearance that everything is going swimmingly when you know otherwise. >> why can't there be honesty? we picked it up with marc. why can't he say, i didn't tell the truth or broke a promise. i broke a critical promise and millions of american peoples are hurting because of it. this is what i will do. we don't have that. what i said. this is what he said. what we have said was if you had a policy that didn't change. that's not what he said. now the thing about, oh, you can just call the 800 number. that just directs people back to the website. >> i could have sworn he said "period" at the end and now he's addededed a lengthy footnote. if a

, kathleen sebelius told reporters since october 1, 106,185 people have enrolled. 79,000 enrolled through state exchanges. and about 27,000 enrolled through that federal exchange. that has the had so many problems. that is about 21% of what the obama administration had expected to enroll before the exchanges were open. another 975,407 people have completed applications for insurance but have not yet made the purchase. many of those people are shopping for family plans. and the administration estimates that is coverage for 1.5 million people. an additional $396,261 people have signed up for medicaid. secretary sebelius insisted today enrollment under the affordable care act is comparable to early days of enrollment under the health care reform law that massachusetts enacted in 2006 under governor romney. >> we can reasonably expect the numbers will grow substantially over the next five months as they did in massachusetts which enrolled only .3%. or 123 people in its first month. we know from experience in the bay state that people tend to research and kid theconsider th options talk things
is trying to expand their medicaid. we don't need the likes of kathleen sebelius or barack obama telling us what we should like or need, obama care is on life support. what would you say, sir? >> i would say, just look at the facts. you know, you go to these states where our exchanges are working. people are signing up in droves. and that's what's going to happen, once they get the federal exchange set up. you know, forget about the politics. you know, as governors, we don't have time to worry about all these ideological battles. i've got 4.3 million people to take care of. and i'm going to take care of these 630,000. it will attract more jobs for kentucky. >> howard, help me understand the politics. if the governor doesn't mind. i'm trying to square the success that he's having with mitch mcconnell jolly stomping on the grave of obama care. put the two of those together. >> the governor knows kentucky politics better than i. even think the governor doesn't want to put politics in the equation, the fact is there's a very important senate race in kentucky next year. mitch mcconnell is known
by the end of the month, and in the meantime you can apply the old-fashioned way, by phone. k kathleen sebelius is coming back in front of the senate finance committee. she got a surprise gift. the texas state tennessee handed her a copy of the book "websites for dummies." >>> be sure and look outside at sunrise, because a partial solar eclipse will be visible in some states and it's expected to last less than two minutes. the moon's shadow will make the sun look like a half moon or three quarter moon, so don't look directly at the sun, obviously, and the safest way to view a solar eclipse is through one side of a bough knocka hrurz or telescope. >>> and there were headlines saying he is through playing black characters, noting it has not had a black cast member since 2007. >> so carry washington, of course, a female black actress guest hosted the show last night. >> so sorry to interrupt, oprah winfrey has arrived and would like to pop in and say hello. >> that's wonderful. >> what a nice surprise? >> don't you think you should go and get changed? >> why? >> so oprah can come in? >> o

secretary kathleen sebelius were warned as early as march about potential risks with the launch of the health care website. according to documents released by a house committee. the firm said a compressed testing window could affect the administration debility to iron out problems with after its rollout on october 1. butterball has mistry on his hands. the company is looking into why some of its turkeys have not plumped up in time for thanksgiving this year. they said last week the supply of turkeys weighing 16 pounds we limited for the holidays. those are your news headlines on the fox business network. lori: thank you, lauren green. to present a campaigns now and romney's turn in the spotlight. the wife of mitt romney is out with a new cookbook. it is called the romney family table and sales of the book are going to cause netgear to her heart. she is donating proceeds to center for neurological diseases at the hospital in boston. i had the pleasure of sitting down with an rally to talk about the book, politics and her take on the troubled obamacare rollout. >> m
he ask him? >> he asked him about kathleen sebeli sebelius, whether or not she was on his team, he asked him about the website, when did you know it, which he bobbed and weaved around. >> and he mentioned clarence paige, who called the president a liar on this. >> and that's from his hometown ""chicago tribune." but my point is is that this is a 25-minute interview. we saw clips from this 25-minute interview. and those interviews, when they are not live, are doing very differently than a live interview. you have much more time. i think they both looked more conversational than you would in a very confrontational interview. >> jim pinkerton, this semi apology, qualified apology, was big news everywhere, but not so much in the "new york times." >> the "new york times" had already tried to spin the thing for the president, he, quote, misspoke. >> in fairness, that was the editorial page. >> exactly. that's the flagship for liberalism. and four days before was -- do you have the headlines? >> no. >> millions eligible for free policies under care act. i thought the failure of the times
. obviously the blame starts at the top with the president and kathleen sebelius. this looks like a systemic breakdown. looks like you just can't point at the people at the very top. there's a lot of people up and down the food chain that failed miserably on this. >> it is systemic. it goes to the heart of the democratic party argument an argument that the government can do a lot of good things really well. if we can't get this right it under mines that entire argument. >> an argument you've said very publicly, in this case you support it. >> do i. >> you want this for personal reasons, not for professional reasons, you want this to work for personal reasons and there are millions of people like that, which makes this all the more, all the more just unbelievable to people who believe that the government can do big things and do it well. >> it's not just a personal thing. i have two older daughters who have been able to take advantage of obama care. but i think any american, whether you're a small government conservative or big government liberal or like most of america you just want governm
that most of the bill would come out in regulations written by that arrogant and smug kathleen sebelius. there are now something like 15,000 pages of regulations. all of the hoo-ha over sandra burke and her birth control, i think we knew birth control and abortions would be covered. they prevented illegal immigrants from getting obama kaefrmt of course insurance was going to go up. you'd be required to cover things that no normal person would want to insure against so people would be thrown off their plans. as we know from the federal register, the hhs knew in 2010 and predicted about 93 million americans would be thrown off their current insurance plans, the ones they shopped for, the ones they liked, the ones they're beginning to be thrown off now. >> exactly. there was with moment -- every once in a while you see a piece of tape that reveals the truth about something. here is the president explaining how he got burned in obama care. watch this. >> having said that, given that i've been burned already with a website -- more importantly the american people have been burned by a website
, it was off the record, he said it on the record the other day, said i hope kathleen sebelius is up to handling the roll out of aca because right now i'm very concerned. this was last year. said i think next year is going to be really ugly. max baucus called it and he was scared a year ago this was going to happen. how did the administration allow this to happen? they were getting warnings. >> right. >> from capitol hill. >> well, it's a great question. we'll spend years doing the kind of post mortem on this. it count have gone any worse. it's not like the white house wasn't focused on it. for months they were saying, all year, this entire year they have been saying the most important thing the only thing that matters is getting the health care, the aca more broad but the roll out particularly right. they didn't get it right. but part of it is -- i think part of its difficulty is the way it was passed. because of the dysfunctional congress there was no chance and no one worked harder than senator baucus to find some republicans and make this a bipartisan -- susan collins and others
